Softball Win and My Seven Links

by - Friday, July 29, 2011

Our softball team won again last night, putting us in first place in the division going into playoffs! I got on base both times I was at bat, although I made a stupid base running error that my team did not let me live down the rest of the night.

I did manage to sort of redeem myself by making one hell of a catch at home plate though. One of my teammates threw a rocket in from the outfield that I managed to snag to stop more runners from advancing. You should have seen the jaws drop on players from both teams when I actually caught it.

Unfortunately I'll miss playoffs next weekend because I'll be out of town for a work trip, but I'm sure they'll do just fine without me.

My 7 Links

Kristen over at the Concrete Runner nominated me to play along in the latest trend sweeping the blog world. So without further ado, here are my 7 links:

Most beautiful post: My MCM Decision

The post where I decided my heart wasn't into running a marathon in the fall of 2010 and that I didn't want my running to feel pressured and miserable. (At least that's how I felt in April, but September I was ready to run a marathon, since next link for more).

Most popular post: My Philadelphia Marathon recap.

Almost finished

I think you all just enjoyed looked at the pictures of me crying as I finished the race.

Most controversial post: Don't really have one. I write a fairly non-controversial blog. But I guess this post I did on the cost of eating meat is probably the closest thing to a controversial post.

Most helpful post: How to Plan a Run-cation on a Shoestring Budget

I love to travel. I love to run. And I definitely love to combine the two. But race registration fees and traveling aren't always cheap, so I shared my best tips for playing a run-cation on a budget.

A post whose success surprised you: Trying out BodyFlow

Even though this review of my first BodyFlow class is more than two years old, it continues to be the most popular thing on my blog and it's hands down what drives the most Google traffic each month. I guess most people know what BodyPump is, but BodyFlow seems to be less well-known

A post you didn't feel got the attention it deserved: Laura's First 5K 


For a race recap, I was surprised by the lack of comments on this post, usually my race recaps get a lot of comments, but this one didn't for some reason.

Most proud of: I'm Too Slow

BlogHer 5K Times Square
Running with friends in NYC at BlogHer last year

I finally admitted that I was terrified of running with a group because I didn't want to be the person holding everyone back. Even though I was definitely the slowest runner there that day, I still had a good time and started to embrace running with friends.
